Wednesday, October 1, we held a luncheon honoring Author/Speaker/Head of the Tariq Khamisa Foundation. Tariq Khamisa was Azim’s son. Tariq was a San Diego student, when he was murdered by a 14 year-old gang member as part of what appears to have been a gang initiation. The 14 year-old, Tony Hicks, was the first person under sixteen who was tried as an adult in California.
Azim has forgiven Tony, and has established the Tariq Khamisa Foundation, which keeps kids out of gangs and away from violence. The story of Azim’s road to forgiveness, and Tony’s resultant personal redemption is breath-taking, riveting, and very practical. You may want to read one of Azim’s books, which are available at Amazon.
